Breakfast at the Bronte

Start the day right

After a comfortable night in our York guest house, we welcome you to breakfast, upon which we pride ourselves. To start with, we invite you to help yourself to fruit juices, cereals, fresh fruit, and yoghurts.

Then, choose from our varied menu - and for those with a hearty appetite we'd recommend trying our 'full Bronte breakfast'. We have a number of different types of tea available, and lashings of hot coffee - sure to set you up for the day.

Vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs are catered for, please let us know your specific dietary requirements when making your booking.
